Candidate Interview, April 6, 2004 Municpal Election

City Council - Don Nimmer

Transcribed interview, basis for Warrensburg Free Press article March 11 issue

Interview was conducted on 3/1 at Dr. Nimmeer's residence.

What do you see as most important qualifications for a council person?

How long have you lived in Warrensburg? What's your educational background? What civic or other organizations have you served in? What do you see as the 3 main issues facing Warrensburg and how address? Other issues:


Should the city support the Old Drum Bus Service? At what cost? Are Warrensburg's parks needs properly addressed? Elaborate? Do you support a skateboard park – how should it be funded? In the past, relationships with the County have sometimes been strained. What's best way for governmental units to work together? To what extent should CMSU influence governmental decisions? What degree of oversight should the City exercise over non-governmental entities that receive tax money: Would you support mandatory curbside recycling? Would you support smoking ban in businesses? How should city employees be compensated? Would you support employee unions? What should be our public works priorities? Streets? Sewers? Development? What should be done about the West Pine Street bar situation? Anything else you want to bring up before the final quote? Will you give me a quotable statement on why we should elect you.
